Nicolas Cruden, M.D., Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This course provides excellent and comprehensive instruction in basic and intermediate cardiac CT angiography. The tuition is easy to follow with a wide variety of cases."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This program that I attended was beyond my expectation. The materials that were provided by Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD and all the fellows were informative, educational and the best collections of cases that I ever had. Thank you! All the tips and tricks provided were indeed very good for future interpretation of CTA."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent and very well structured training course. Great variety of cases. Instructors are very knowledgeable and experienced."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an excellent learning experience. Very well organized, excellent didactic sessions along with ample volume of live and saved cases. Highly recommend this coures for level II training."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course. Great lectures and very pleasant atmosphere."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "The course director, Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD, was fantastic. His teaching was crystal clear. He was patient with everything and everyone. The cases were excellent, well organized, and listed in a log with dates, type of scan, and diagnosis to be learned after the students had a chance to review the scan without knowing the diagnosis. The support staff were helpful and patient also. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to attend scores of courses all over the U.S.A.. I found this course to be the best in every way."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "The course was excellent. It was well organized and the instructors were very knowledgeable."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an excellent course. The instructors were very experienced in CCTA and also very good at explaining things. There was a high volume of cases both live and archived. The workstations were also excellent and easy to use. I am comfortable reading studies on my own at this point."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD and his staff have made a great effort to provide a comprehensive course in CT angiography. The cases reviewed were very instructive and relevant to general cardiologists. I would strongly recommend this course."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Great course. Good mix of lectures and reading cases. Drs. Rumberger and Fein were great teachers and made the course fun. Highly recommended."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an outstanding course. Not only did I enjoy the course, I now feel qualified to adequately interpret cardiac CT angiograms. Drs Rumberger and Fein have constructed a highly effective and fully engaging curriculum that I would recommend to anyone considering training in cardiac CT."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Very intensive course with lots of hands on experience. Excellent teachers with lots of clinical correlation. Good review of the physics involved with image acquisition. I felt that the only weaknesses were the lack of training regarding extra cardiac manifestations and would have liked to seen more of these and the inability to review a scan in its entire form sometimes. I also would have liked to learn more about image acquisition and the removal of artifacts. Overall excellent course. I am also considering level 3 from the same institution. "
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "The course itself was good. At that time, they did not have individual workstations to train on which would have increased my rating. However, we were exposed to a variety of cases from their vast library as well as live cases. I'm sure they have made improvements in their course since then including individual workstations. Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD is an excellent teacher and his knowledge and experience in the field can't be debated. If you want to learn from the best, I recommend this course."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an absolutely fantastic course. I couldn't have been more pleased. I wasn't an absolute novice in regards to cardiac CT, with no knowledge or insight into processing or with working with the workstation. In fact I had a pretty good anxiety level about working with a CTA workstation that first time. However the anxiety level was quickly abated thanks to the expert mentorship of Drs. Rumberger and Fein. Now I have confidence in both working with the workstation and interpreting the images that are provided."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course! Even if you do not have any significant knowledge about CCTA this course quickly teaches you from the fundamentals of physics to live cases and cases including CABG, stents, artifacts etc. Also extra cardiac structures discussed as well. Very good teaching and mentors receptive to questions etc. I did not have any knowledge prior to this course and after more than 150 cases I feel a lot more comfortable. The fact that you do not have to take a week or a week and a half for level II is a major bonus. Very nice staff as well."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Fantastic course in all aspects. Dr. John A. Rumberger MD is a pioneer in the field and his course is an excellent educational experience. I have attended other courses and found this one to be head and shoulders above the rest. Efficiently organized, expertly taught. I just completed the course this past weekend and came back and read a heavy load of studies- felt completely comfortable with my level of experience after completing the course. Had my studies blindly overviewed by one of our cardiac imaging specialists who completely concurred with my reads."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "A wonderful presentation with state of the art CCTA capabilities, access to cases with angiographic corellation, and full presentation of the imaging process from image acqisition to final reporting."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Best course I have attended. Both instructors were very competent and good teachers. The course is very well-run and organized. Would recommend without reservation."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "'Intensive course' indeed. Fullfilled all my needs of learning a brand new field from a novice to a competent level and exceeded all my expectations of didactic learning, hands-on experience on Tera Reacon work-station and all logistic arrangements. No minor detail was over-looked and both speakers are a pleasure to listen to. Andrea was extraordinarily helpful in all aspects of arrangement from beginning to end and went out of her way to accomodate unexpected needs createde by a cancelled shuttle. Highly recommended."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course with extensive review of pathology and hands on experience."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent opportunity to ask questions on all aspects of coronary CTA. I liked the option of spending more time with the hands on acquisition of data, as opposed to more time on the workstation."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This is a truly outstanding course. I would highly recommend it to any of my colleagues."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This is an excellent course. It fulfilled all my needs to be a level II independent interpreter of coronary CTAs. Dr. John A. Rumberger MD and Dr. Fein have put together a well-rounded course to take you from a novice level to a competent reader. All the didactics and case study were well organized. We saw a wide variety of cases including CABG, stents, non-obstructive and obstructive disease. Also special emphasis was put on noncoronary and noncardiac structures. They also make sure that the trainees are well aware of the limitations of the CTAs. I had a very good experience and I will recommend this to anyone."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Well orgranized. Extensive academic and pratical experience in the teachers."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr Budoff and staff were fantastic."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent teachings by one of the clinical world founding fathers of cardiac CT. A lots of 'examination type' of questions as well as real life cases of the scanner. Hands on experience on the workstations on the data sets gives me confidence on real life cases. Friendly and facilitating supporting staff. Good food!"
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Great course. Very practical, hands-on and very real world oriented, which I thought was very important. Drawbacks, limitations, etc were made clear . Great mentors and you felt you could always contact them for help later on. Strong academic experience as well as very efficiently run to make it as intense as it's supposed to be."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course, very comprehensive. Highly recommended."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Drs. Budoff and Gopal were good and I found the case discussions most valuable."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "A great course! Both John Rumberger and David Fein are very pleasant, easy to interact with, highly informative, and a great team. Very informative, friendly, and with a good objective view on applicability of CTA. Excellent teaching, intense but very well presented. Nothing but praise. I came all the way from Australia for this, and it was worth it."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Extremely well organized and efficiently conducted course with optimal balance between didactic material and hands-on experience. Drs. Rumberger and Fein are excellent teachers whose effectiveness is facilitated by their expertise and collegial attitude toward the students. The entire staff; from course administrator Ms. Lanza to the nurses and CT technologists; were welcoming, informative and extremely helpful. Highly recommended!"
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Provided a comprehensive but intensive course on the utility and interpretation of Cardiac CTA. The instructors were knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable. The cases were live patients studied while we were at the site as well as a selected group of cases to provide a learning value. It focused on coronary disease but also touched on other anatomical diseases and variants. The CTA was put into clinical context in most cases. The course was professionally run."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew Budoff and Dr. Ambar Gopal were outstanding. I found the hands-on workstation time most valuable with Drs. Budoff and Gopal's guidance."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Well organized with relevant curriculum and topics. Good balance of didactic and hands on instruction."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent teaching and training. Supervised 50 live cases over 3 1/2 days. Dr. John A. Rumberger MD and Dr. Fein do an excellent job."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Worth it - if have to spend 5 days getting your level 2 certification- there is probably no better place."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew Budoff made excellent presentations and is a great teacher. Dr. Ambar Gopal is an excellent resourse and I appreciated his great attitude. The live cases were most valuable."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This is an outstanding course and provides the physician with an opportunity to learn from the experts. Spectacular teachers who are dedicated to providing an extensive review of the technology and skill sets necessary to become competent in reading cardiac MDCT angiography."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew Budoff was absolutely fantastic and very good at explaining things. The course exceeded my expectations. I am This mode of understanding anatomy is better than initial exposure."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "I am an interventional cardiologist who came into the course with no training in cardiac CTA. The instructors did an amazing job. I feel completely comfortable incorporating cardiac CTA into my practice at this point. I highly recommend this course for any cardiologist who is interested in learning this technology."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course. Well run with good practical information and hands on training. Dr. John A. Rumberger MD is an excellent teacher."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew Budoff is an excellent teacher and Dr. Ambar Gopal is a very good and patient teacher. The course was very valuable to me."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Outstanding course, probably the best that I have ever attended. Very well put together and organized. Great location and teaching environment. I would recommend highly."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Matthew Budoff is a wonderful fund of knowledge. His candor and down to earth presentation of the state of the art is great. Ambar Gopal helped to answer specific questions, get us back on track and provided next step in learning advice appropriately. The workstation time with hands on and Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD working with the same program was most valuable to me."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent, comprehensive and hands on."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD is an excellent teacher and an expert in the field. He answers all your questions and reviews all important parts. Dr. Gopal is also an excellent teacher, very patient, very knowledgable on CTA and the software."

Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew Budoff was great and informative. Dr. Ambar Gopal was very helpful and knowlegeable. I found the unlimited access to the workstations most valuable."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an excellent course! I learned more in 1 day than I did in 1 month of my fellowship. It was interactive, engaging and worth every dime. We easily met all the case requirements and the live cases were very interesting. The documentation was incredible. I would recommend it again and again."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course with the opportunity to learn from Dr Budoff, one of the leaders in CT angiography."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Very well organized and efficient course. Initially I was questioning the ability to review in the time allotted the number of live cases that were suggested. Due to very creative scheduling of the patients this was accomplished as advertised. While the didactic part is adequate for persons without prior exposure to CTA, having some background prior to the course results in the possibility to interact at the different level with the instructors."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course. Materials and preparaton, course material, case studies and access to Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD were all excellent."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Well rounded, concentrated course, met all the criteria for level II training."

Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Expertly executed. Performed as advertised. Staff was very knowledgeable and honest. Well worth the money and time."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Absolutely outstanding. Matt is an amazing teacher as well as being a leader in the field. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone (pardon the pun)."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This was an outsatnding course in a very relaxed atmosphere. I am already reading studies on my own. To fit this much information and all the studies into 3 1/2 days was amazing. I would highly recommend this course to anyone."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course, very well organized. Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD and his staff are extremely knowledgible and freely share the years of experience they have gained. They are committed to promoting excellent CT angio skills in all their students."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "The course was very well organized and had lots of pertinent cases to review. After the course, I feel competent in evaluating CTA's of the heart and know the artifacts and pitfalls to avoid. I like the candid information and lack of bias from the instructors, as they aren't employed by the big CT scanner companies."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course! Great teaching. One on one case review would be helpful. In addition, it would be good to know which cases would be reviewed from the list with the group in advance, so that each person can make sure to review separate cases."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent intense small course with a lot of one to one interactions with faculty to allow the attendee to get considerable knowlege and experience with CTA. Time well utilized with little or no wasted time."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Superb course."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Outstanding course."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "That was excellent course for learning of CT Angiogram."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course, well taught and organized. Highly recommended!!!"
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent level 2 training course Appreciate the opportunity to train and all Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD's efforts in putting course together. Please advise indications and timing for level 3 or if not applicable outside of academics."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "I found the course and instructors to be excellent. The material was presented in a concise and very informative manner. The instructors and their staff are very knowledgeable, and know how to teach and present the material. I have every intention of returning for future courses in vascular and periph. training. I highly recommend this course. The atmosphere was friendly and comfortable."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Great course and teaching of CT."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course, I'd recommend taking it to anyone interested in learning CT angiography."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Course was excellent. Dr Budoff is a very good instructor."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course. Small group w/ multiple work stations optimized hands on experience. Highly recommended. If you are looking for a course that works in the morning and gives you time off in the afternoon, this is not it. Intensive training quickly builds competence."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Wonderful experience."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This Cardiac CTA course is excellent. A small group setting such as this is a great way to learn. Drs. Rumberger and Fein are both good teachers. Two people per work station was ideal as we both learned things from each other. A 3 1/2 day course is clearly enough time to learn CTA. I highly recommend this course to others."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This is an excellent course. It combines both the hands-on CTA experience and an overview of Cardiac imaging and puts CT in that perspective. Would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in starting a CT program."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Drs. Rumberger and Fein did a stellar job of teaching how to interpret CTA scans in a conservative fashion. Dr. John A. Rumberger MD is a founder of this field of imaging and it is humbling to be in the presence of such a thought leader in medicine, albeit one who has been treated badly by the medical political leadership for being a brilliant pioneer. Both Drs. Rumberger and Fein provide excellent hands on individualized teaching and deal with all questions with respect. They are simply great teachers who all the time display a keen sense of history and humor that make the long hours fly by. The support staff is accomodating and expertly handles all details well to make your stay in the Princeton area go well. Don't believe what you hear from competitors who say that sharing a TeraRECON workstation with a colleague cuts down on the learning experience. To the contrary, it enhances the learning experience. You learn from each other. This is a true collaborative learning experience. There is no wasted time. The trainees are saturated with cases and lectures even during lunch. This is learning by immersion that this group has down pat. This is one of the best learning experiences I have ever attended. Great value for the money spent."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Excellent course, very happy, will come for Level 3."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Good course. To the point and very practical. Very experienced teachers with excellent instruction and valuable insight to comprehensive CTA imaging - business and clinical. An abundance and variety of cases. Very free of commerical bias. Probably the best software and machine for the practicing cardiologist. You will leave prepared! Not always enough time to navigate the workstation. Would expect to see more cath correlation."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Matt is very practical and his approach allows you to read studies quickly and accurately."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Superb Course. Not a single minute wasted. Dr John Rumberger and Dr David Fein deliver what they promise. You will learn what you need to know. Great hands on experience. I just finished the Level II course."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "Dr. Matthew J. Budoff MD does an excellent job of hands-on teaching of live case material. His fund of knowledge of the subject and in cardiology in general is superb. The teaching file is large and well documented with on-line cath correlatons easily visible. The didactic sessions are also excellent. There is abundant time for questions/answers. The technical staff of the lab is approachable and knowledgeable. The only negative would be the physical space which is constrained."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "The instructors were very knowledgeable. The course was free of any conflict of interest. They had enough cases to present including live cases."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "This course was outstanding. The didactic sessions were very good. The amount of time and assistance available on the work stations was excellent. There was always someone to help or answer questions. The live cases that were reviewed were very beneficial, some we reviewed on our own first and the rest as a group. We always had the opportunity to go back and review if we had questions."
Level 2 Cardiac CTA, "An excellent course. Drs Rumberger and Fein are very knowledgable, friendly and provide great teaching with a wide range of relevant cases."
